Hi Thomas.  Very cool that you are working on zc.dict + zc.blist.

The updateOrder API is a sucky API for blists, as I'm sure you've  
realized. :-)

FWIW, I seem to recall that Plone has a reasonable-to-nice API for  
changing order in containers, and the API would be able to take much  
better advantage of using blists for the ordering.  I was intending to  
study that when I designed the new API (even if the Plone API were  
perfect, I would be wary of copying it because of GPL vs. ZPL, but  
maybe you could get them to relicense if you wanted it).

You'd probably still want to keep updateOrder around, I guess, since  
that's the Zope 3 interface, but I would have documentation  
discouraging it.
